Shepway’s New Facebook Page

A new Facebook page has been set up – Princes Parade Now – which is very much in favour of the development. Although it doesn’t say so, it is clear that the page has been set up by either the council or its PR consultants as the website address is Shepway’s Princes Parade website. When we posted a comment about this it was deleted and we were blocked. Fortunately someone else has repeated the comment so visitors to the page will know the truth. But how can it be right that Shepway is using council tax to pay for this propaganda? Where is the transparency? And given that they are both landowner and planning authority how can it be right that they can put something this biased in the public domain?
